From the Farm to the Plate: An MKR Recap

Image
NSW’s Cathy and Anna proved worthy contestants

To put it out there, the only way David and Corinne could manage to scrape through into the next round would be for Cathy and Anna to either burn down the kitchen or offer a plate of salmonella.

They came close with the salmonella.

But, knowing these two as much as we have been able to, Cathy and Anna will not settle for anything less than perfection.  There’s the house set upon acres of green land and fabulous gardens in country NSW, there’s posh country style home decorating, there’s the first class menu perfect for the Country Manor (also the name of their instant restaurant) – it’s all very Hyacinth Bucket in Keeping up Appearences

Best Dish of the Night: When Kate Miller-Heidke look-a-like Carly spoke about agreeing with Kelly’s comments on the entree and calling her Chloe.  To be fair, both Kelly and Chloe are so interchangeable that it does become difficult to actually tell one from the other.  The resulting (and totally acceptable mishap) resulted in the following face…

The Food Overall:  While not for me, Cathy and Anna proved themselves worthy of nabbing the top spot on the ladder.  The presentation was flawless, all meals came out on time and David was left to comment on how Cathy and Anna didn’t actually cook anything.  Entree of Seared scotch fillet with eggplant caviar was cooked so rare it looked like a cow on a plate to me.  It was rare and slightly lacking in seasoning.  Main consisted of even rarer lamb (possibly seething in Salmonella) loin with potato galette and desert (the one meal I would have devoured) featured home made apple pies.

This is how I saw the entree

The Final Result: Australia cheers with glee as David and Corinne go sailing off into the distance playing Enya’s Onrioco Flow “Sail away, sail away, sail away!”  To be fair, these two are the only couple who have managed to steal the bitch-light off Chloe and Kelly who managed to make round one all about themelves.

Up Next: All couples are reunited and are presented with a big red MKR truck!  But what’s in the truck?  According to my boyfriend, the truck is filled with monkeys all trained as Michelin Star chefs – it’s a cooking battle for control of the earth!

A Total Score of 15 Points: An MKR Recap

Image

“We are aiming for the highest score in My Kitchen Rules History”.  A legit quote from David that would have made more sense if you replace highest with the word lowest.

Like most, I settled into the couch with my block of cookies and cream flavored Kit Kat (My newest best friend) and awaited to see the mess that was to bless my eyes.

Well, before my eyes were blessed, we had to witness David in his undies, drinking a glass of red, waiting for doting wife Corinne to iron them.  Pretty sure this was punishment for getting to see Harry in the shower the night before.

Getting back to it, David and Corinne were oooooooozing confidence, certain their menu was to not only redeem their earlier failures but to also prove that they deserve top spot on the ladder. By the time the guests arrived, the dessert was cooked and setting, their entree ready to cook and the pork for mains happily pounded.

Best Dish of the Night: Manu Fidel comparing the entree of corn soup with avocado and tiger prawns to baby food.  I’m still deciding what’s worse – having your food described as inedible or only fit enough for someone unable to tell you how much it sucks.  Pete’s ‘let me turn this bowl upside down to show you how thick it was’ trick would have only been better had he decided to wear the bowl like a Philip Treacy hat.

The Food Overall: Take this one Kelly….

BLERGH_My_Kitchen_Rules_2014_C_0e0b73eb2d0f7db87737655f525b8851So the entree was baby food, the main – pork medallions with cauliflower puree looked like a classic RSL Sunday night seniors special while the dessert of flan, or was it cake or was it mousse, while looked AMAZING, it actually made most of the guests dry wretch with disgust.

The Final Score: David and Corinne managed to make it into the MKR record books!  For the lowest score ever.  A combined score of 15 points from the guests – speaking of which, which restaurant were Carly and Tresne eating at?  A score of 7?  I think someone may have pounded their pork a little too much.

That said, the captain went down with his ship and his wife kicking and screaming (and holding an iron) right beside him.

Desperate to impress with your cooking skills?  head over to the official MKR website to remake the meals from this instant restaurant and show your guests just how much you hate them!

Next Up: Cathy and Anna – the food critic and the woman I can only hope uses Keeping Up Appearances Hyacinth Bucket as inspiration.

Before I go, I would like to leave you all with the following image to remember as you go about your day….
